    Question for everyone: Is there a way to force the download to the new software?

    I have an HR20-100 that is currently running the 0x1be software. I'm under the assumption that the most current software available for the -100 is the 0x1EA.

    Thanks in advance! :confused:

    Both versions are in the stream now as national release; however ...EA is coming out by region - I got it a couple of days ago (Portland, OR) when I was trying to force ...BE ( This was after a bad experience with the last CE download last Friday that I had to get rid of)

    Latest check of http://www.redh.com/dtv/index.php?r=HR20 shows that the 100 is receiving EA today vs BE last download being 1/22

    Anybody try to force download of EA today?

    That's not how you read that site. You have to look at the transponder for each receiver. The -100 get's it's national software from TP25, which still have 1BE. 1EA is only TP31, so it's still not national. Just because the TP31 has a newer date doesn't necessarily mean it's gone national.

    mpeg2 only as far as I can tell. I set up TVersity to transcode on the fly, and it works for "almost" everything - couldn't get a 1080p file to downconvert (likely not enough PC horsepower), had to scale everything down to 853x480 max to keep videos streaming without dropping, and only 1 of 5 youtube videos worked - I still get some dropped frames, and there's no FF / REW yet - but compared to what I had before the release, which was nothing, I'm happy. :D

    Where is the national software for the HR21-700? I guess it is on TP30.

    In Florida and received it tonight on my HR20. Right before it downloaded I couldn't change channels, then they changed, then a few mins later the software just installed itself.

    Wow...I just got the "upgrade" this morning at 3:51 a.m.....one of my kids is watching Nik1 at 9:22 a.m. and the picture freezes but the audio keeps going......I really hope this isn't a regular occurrence, because I had a total of ZERO picture freezes/reboots until this time with my HR20-100.....with my other 3 Tivos freezing/resetting constantly, this would be just fantastic to add my only reliably receiver to the freeze/reboot list so I'm left with no reliable way to record shows.....I will switch to FIOS in a heartbeat if this continues.

    I got it this morning too and I find the guide to be much faster- particularly when scrolling right-left through time. I LOVE the 30-sec skip. Its VERY responsive and I think the 6-sec (or whatever it is) review seems a little faster too- much more like my Tivo was.

    This seems to be a step in the right direction for me.

    Oh and the fact that the SLB still exists if you switch back and forth from a recorded show to a live show is also very nice.

    Any way to avoid getting the "update" now? I would like to wait until everyone uses it for a while and they get all the bugs out of it.

    0x1EA is a very solid release. I wouldn't worry about.

    Turned on my HR20-100 this morning, received the message that my device was upgraded.

    Now, all my recorded programs are gone, my prioritizer/schedule is empty, and my custom channel list is gone. It's as if the thing formatted itself.

    Anyone else seen or heard of this happening? Is there anyway to get anything back?


    Thanks!

    I agree - I've had it since the first of the week after dumping the bad CE 0x01FO.

    It's working great - DoD, Media Share, Guide, Search, etc. all up and running good - plus no reboots :)

    Dumb question here:

    What's the difference between 30 second "Slip" and 30 second "Skip"? :confused:

    Slip does a quick 30 second fast forward, you see whats being skipped.

    Skip jumps ahead 30 second, you don't see whats being skipped but it's faster.

    The 30s slip just put it into a very fast forward to slip ahead 30s. 30s skip is how the TiVos do it, it just skips 30s of the show.

    I just got the 1ea update and have seen no problems.

    agreed with others, the 30 sec skip is superb. cant wait to get it on my R-15's.

    One issue though, i was looking forward to the guide update that grays out unsubscribed channels, and while i do see some of these unsubscribed channels grayed out, i ALSO see unsubscribed channels that havent been grayed out.
